Thursday Morning Ramblings & Booty from JoAnn's

It's been a rainy week thus far for which I am extremely thankful.  This was the second summer we've had here that has been so terribly dry.  The ground needed a really good soaking & hopefully most of the plants & bushes & trees will be able to get a second wind.  Once it dries up I will need to mow the lawn (I'd like to think it will be for the last time this year but I know that's just a dream) & also get outside to pull weeds & trim things.

Last week I went to JoAnn's in Lexington where I discovered that the DMC I thought was on sale wasn't really on sale until the weekend.  I found this out after spending the good part of an hour going over my list of colors I didn't have & choosing them from the display.  Decided to buy them anyway (138 skeins) since I had spent all that time searching for them & wouldn't be back to JoAnn's for a while.  The sale wasn't all that good anyway so I only ended up spending a couple dollars more than I expected to.

No matter what's been happening around here I've been devoting some time to stitching each evening.  I've finished stitching 4 pinkeeps & I'm almost finished with the needleroll I mentioned a while back (need to make the space to thread the ribbon & then sew it all together which terrifies me a bit).  Tonight I get to start a new stitching project.  I'm not sure yet what that will be.  

Just saw the country singer's tour bus head down the road.  It always puzzles me why he lives here & not in Tennessee.  I've never met him although I believe his child plays with the child who lives next door (the neighbor who lets his dogs wreak havoc in our yard).  

Not much planned for today.  A little bit of cleaning, a little bit of crafting ... why does that sound familiar?  Oh ... the Bible!  "A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest..."  (Proverbs 24:33).  I once read that this verse is often quoted during a funeral service but it actually pertains to someone being lazy.  The entire verse is "A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest - & poverty will come on you like a thief & scarcity like an armed man."  

I'd better go be un-lazy   : )
